E-Bay Compromised Account.

Just Thought i'd share my story.: I was browsing e-bay and found a guy selliing the V2's and V3's for $23.00 free shipping. I was flabergasted , I had heard of people getting great deals on the internet and this was the Great and powerful E-Bay. The guy had impeccable ratings 146 at positive ratings! The ad said he had 80 sold and only 8 left so, wow man, I bought 3.
Well I got a e-mail from the bay that said that the sellers account had been compromised.
On my account page was a message:
We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Center to help resolve any problems you may encounter.
So I went to my Pay pal account and found the transactions said that the packages had shipped from China (China Post) and were on their way.
I am left wondering what will show up at my door???

Cross-posting Posting the same content in multiple posts. Note that moderators only act on cross-posts that cause a problem, and often choose not to issue any warnings, instead choosing to move, merge, or close threads to resolve the situation. 1

Tell you what, if it's anything close to what the listing said it was, I'll buy one off you for double what you paid

Cheers,
Geoff

make sure you get paypal/ebay refund before the time limit is up if the order doesn't show up soon - don't let the "vendor" fob you off with delaying excuses

PayPal has upped the dispute time to 180 days for that very reason.

Yes, I was thinking the same, just don't know the time limits on something like this. I'm sure they have information at both e-bay and paypal. The package is sitting in the post office in china ready to dispatch, I hope that doesn't mean another two weeks before it sends. I will have to keep a close eye on this shipment and ask for a resolution before the allotted time period is up.

Anyway beware folks.
